Action at Assembly 2016


Following consultation with Area Church leaders, the General Board of Mennonite Church Canada appointed a Task Force on discerning future directions in response to two central questions:

  • What is God’s Spirit calling us to in the 21st Century?
  • What are the best ways (programs, structures, strategies) for the church to thrive and grow?

Precipitating this action was the growing reality that current programs are not financially sustainable in the long run. Guiding the Task Force in its work is the Vision Statement: God calls us to be followers of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit to grow as communities of grace, joy and peace so that God’s healing and hope flow through us to the world.
